Will police brass take action against the officer seen in this video?
That seems to be the standout question, whether Ray Kelly himself or other officials will act against the police officer filmed beating a young man (toward the end of the short clip) whose only "crime" seemed to be yelling "Shame on you!" at officers arresting another protester.
(Also notable in this episode is that police spokesman Paul Browne initially denied that police officers had used pepper spray, but then -- as noted in the print editions of The New York Times -- he changed his story after seeing the video by Brooklyn's Brandon Jourdan.)
But beware. The New York Times has an interesting Sunday report mentioning that various videos are offering competing visions of culpability in the police/protesters clash. (Read "Truth Depends on Camera Angle".)
[Note regarding underlying issue in this video dispute: Protesting students are demanding the ouster of New School University president Bob Kerrey.]
First let's see Brandon Jourdan's video.
Meanwhile, the website "Newcampus.org" was reporting that Brooklyn College students were among the protesters and are among those in Jourdan's video.The site also offers the following video that its says was taken by a Brooklyn College student, identified as Chris McCallion. This could not immediately be confirmed, but see the video.
